The move from Nico Schlotterbeck (22) to BVB and the rejection of FC Bayern caused a stir in the media. Now the national player has explained his decision.

Great development opportunities: National player Nico Schlotterbeck had a number of reasons to switch to Borussia Dortmund and thus turn down FC Bayern, as he revealed to “BVB-TV”. On the one hand, the development opportunities played an important role: “I had great discussions, they gave me the impression that I can take the next step here.”

Short, compact, clear

Looking forward to the “yellow wall”: But Schlotterbeck also gives the fans in Signal-Iduna-Park their share: “I’ve heard a lot about the club, about the fans, the stadium.” Especially the “yellow wall”. he meets with “brutally great[r]” anticipation.

His idol: Mats Hummels: Most recently he met two idols he called BVB: Mats Hummels (“In the decisive phase of my youth, Mats Hummels was one of the best central defenders in Germany and worldwide.”) and New Municher Niklas Süle ( “He went down a path that I want to go too.”) Schlotterbeck will have to compete with both of them.
